Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Some good old drinkin' lyrics set to the tune of "Coming Through The Rye," as sung by Frank Converse's good friend Charley Fox and published in the Old Cremona Songster, 1863.

Excellent tune and playing as always. I am kinda new to Minstrel banjo so my song list only includes what I find in over the counter books. Where do you find the tunes you come up with?

That tune, the book it is in, and several others can be found at

Another source is the Levy collection:
